Without The Frame: Biratnagar

worldednepal

Biratnagar, Nepal. 2008

This was one of those important days. The ones you remember forever. It was one of those days that give you an abiding sense of hope.

It was also one of those days you work really hard – the heat and humidity had soaked through all my clothes, I had chemical burns on a finger and thumb from slipping on the squat toilet and placing my hand in cleanser that morning, and the sun was so bright it made for tough shooting. But it was impossible to complain, to do anything but get on with the job and be deeply grateful that my work is so rewarding, and is accomplished without once putting 50lbs of bricks on my head.

This gal works harder than I ever will in a liftetime of working. Hours a day at the brick kiln carrying loads of 3kg bricks on her head, eight at a time, back and forth under incredible heat. She was, is, a child laborer.

She’s also confident, has a beautiful smile and is working on her education and starting a small business. She’s the reason I feel great hope for places like Nepal. In a culture of passive acceptance of the fates, she’s grabbing her future with great tenacity. Children like her, and all the children I spent time with in Nepal, inspire me, humble me.

I’m posting this with the kind permission of the girl, who I am leaving unnamed, and of World Education Nepal for whom I shot this image. Big thanks again to Sraddha, one of the most capable, and fun, producers/clients I have worked with.

Inspired.

I’ve spent the last 2 mornings at what has quickly become my favourite place in Kathmandu. Where it is doesn’t matter, and truth be known I’m not sure it’s the kind of place that would benefit by being over-run with photographers. In broad strokes it’s a place where people go to spend their last days. […]

BOUND: Limited Edition Print

My image, BOUND, pictured above, has resonated with many, many people. I’ve had a number of requests for prints, so I am going to offer this as a very limited edition 16×24 print. When they’re gone, they’re gone. What makes it a limited edition? I will only be printing 20 of these in this size, […]
